“I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them.” — Quran 8:12
With the ever-increasing number of jihad attacks in the Western countries, terror is being struck into the hearts of their citizens. The days of expecting peace and protection in a democratic society are over. The Western world is in turmoil, thanks to jihadists and leaders who strangely keep getting voted in while sacrificing the safety of their own jurisdictions and countries for political expediency.
The Telegraph was a little more descriptive about what happened:
The Turin prefect said in a statement that the crowd “was taken by panic and by the psychosis of a terror attack,” fearing that a loud noise was caused by attackers. The source of the loud noise that triggered the stampede remained unclear, officials said. Italian media has speculated it may have been a firecracker.
“Turin stampede: ‘1,500 injured’ at Juventus screening”, BBC News, June 4, 2017:
About 1,500 people were injured in the Italian city of Turin after a firecracker provoked a stampede on Saturday night, police say.
Thousands of football fans were watching a live relay of Juventus’ Champions League final against Real Madrid in Cardiff when a bang was heard and rumours of an explosion spread.
At least seven people, including a seven-year-old child, were seriously hurt, local media say.
It is the 12th Champions League title for Real Madrid.
With 10 minutes of the second half remaining, crowds rushed away from the centre of Piazza San Carlo, crushing people against barriers.
Bags and shoes were left scattered on the ground as people ran screaming out of the square.
Some of the injuries occurred when a barrier around the entrance to an underground car park gave way.
While most of the wounded had cuts on their legs and arms, seven were still in hospital, local media reported.
Three of them were reportedly in a critical condition, including a seven-year-old boy who had head and chest injuries after he was trampled by people rushing to escape.
There was anger locally that the authorities did not do more to put in place proper crowd control measures, the BBC’s James Reynolds in Rome reports….
